Wirthless Ideas

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

I’m trying to get caught up on a couple of things from last week. Here’s one of them. You may have seen this on Pharyngula. As PZ Myers explains: A couple of college students in Toronto…took offense at the patent absurdity of the “Bible and Bible Studies” section of a large bookstore at Yonge and […]

Or Maybe His Arguments Collapsed

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Maybe we haven’t seen our “friend” in the last few days because of a mine collapse.

Skeptics’ Circle #87

Monday, May 26th, 2008

(An actual AIG presentation slide) The 87th Skeptics’ Circle came out a couple of days ago at Action Skeptics. The absolute best post of the bunch is Bing McGhandi’s story of his contest to sneak a fraudulent article past the “peer review” of Answers in Genesis’ creation journal, and the contestant who almost pulled it […]

The Dysfunctional Family Circus

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

Of course, the granddaddy of all Family Circus parodies is the Dysfunctional Family Circus. It went for 500 panels back in the 1990s, before being shut down by the lawyers. Lucky for us, the whole shebang is archived here. Here are just three examples from that site. “…and please allow Daddy to continue to use […]

The Other Family Circus

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

Few things on this Earth are more horrid than The Family Circus. Bil Keane is now 85 years old, and he still won’t quit. That won’t matter anyway, because his son is poised to take over the strip. Except for the oblong heads and massive thighs, Keane is actually a fairly good artist. The strip […]

The Wisdom of Kent Hovind’s Followers

Monday, May 19th, 2008

(Image from Neurotopia) Possummomma calls our attention to Kent Hovind’s blog. As you’ll recall from the last time we discussed this creatard, not only was he committing crimes against education (by telling people the Earth was only 6000 years old and poofed into existence by a magical sky daddy), but he was also committing crimes […]

Slaughter of the Intellect

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Yesterday we looked at the advertisement that crackpot creatard Kevin Wirth wrote to try to get us to buy his crappy Expelled knock-off, a book called Slaughter of the Dissidents. The book is written by non-expelled young-Earth creationist Jerry Bergman. That right there is an interesting point. This whole “doubting Darwin” campaign is the brainchild […]

Freedom Fighter Kevin Wirth Fights Freedom

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Inspired by the minor motion picture! You’ve gagged through the movie, now gag through the book! Yes, if you couldn’t get enough of the movie that is coming soon to a $1 bargain bin near you, now you can read about even more made-up stories of “Darwin-doubter” persecution! Crackpot creatard Kevin Wirth hopes to cash […]
